Dreams: You Are Missing a Body Part

If you find yourself looking down in a dream only to discover that you’re suddenly missing an arm, a leg, a finger, etc., that can often be a sign of some kind of loss in your waking life. Whether the dream involves the traumatic loss of a limb or its simply disappearance, the symbolism is deeply tied to feelings of abandonment, helplessness, and sacrifice. This dream can stem from a fear of losing something or someone important to you in real life. The body part lost likely connects to something you felt was a vital part of yourself that you aren’t ready to let go of.

You’ve Lost Your Head

Dreaming about being headless is often a sign that there is a disconnect between your head and your heart (what you’re thinking and what you’re feeling). For example, you might be thinking so much about an upcoming match of vocabulary test coming up and doing so much memorization and study that you are living temporarily mostly in your head and thinking, thinking, thinking. When I am consumed with a project and forget to eat, that is when I know I am too much in my mind and head. You may be lacking a sense of balance in your life. Try to identify the role that your heart and mind play in your life. Is one taking more control than the other? You may be so focused on common sense and logic that you have started to neglect or suppress your emotions. On the other hand, it’s possible that you are letting your feelings dictate your actions without thinking things through.

Movement Dreams: Airplanes

Airplanes are dream symbols that are often associated with journeys—sometimes spiritual, emotional, or literal. An airplane appearing in your dream can be a sign that you are progressing or moving up in some area of your life. It might also be a sign that it’s time to get a new project “off the ground.” If you’ve been sitting on any big plans for your future, perhaps it’s time to start putting them into action. This dream can also be about exploring your freedom and trying out new experiences. Pay attention to the state of the plane and how it could relate to events in your life. If the plane is delayed or stuck, it might mean that there is something you’ve been looking forward to that hasn’t become a reality yet or some plans that have been put off. It may be that you are afraid to take the next steps to follow through with those plans.

If you’re in a plane crash in your dream, that might represent a failed project or something you were looking forward to that didn’t work out in the end. It can also be a sign that although you have set high goals for yourself, you are afraid that your efforts will result in failure. Like falling dreams, this can also be a sign that you feel like you are losing control.

Movement Dreams: Walking

Dreams about walking often symbolize patience. When we walk somewhere, instead of running or driving in a car, we have much more time to take in our surroundings. Walking is a sign that you aren’t in a rush or feeling pressured to get somewhere at a specific time. Step by step, you move forward, absorbing everything around you. If you apply this idea to your waking life, you might take it as a sign that you’re taking your time in life, little by little getting to where you need to be, whether that is in terms of achievement, self-fulfillment, or spirituality. You’re making consistent progress without feeling like you have to try and play catch up. Bring your attention to your surroundings in your dream, your destination, or any other details like obstacles that might better help you form your interpretation.

Running in Place

Having a dream about running in place, being unable to get anywhere no matter how fast you run, probably means that you are stuck in the past. Something has happened in your life that you are unable to move on from, and this dream is bringing your attention to it. Because you are not totally present in your waking life, you are missing opportunities for growth that will be necessary as you get older. In this case, running in place might represent your own stubbornness and dislike for change.

Dreams: Being Lost

Dreaming about getting lost somewhere might be a sign from your subconscious that you have lost direction in your waking life. Perhaps you feel like you don’t quite fit in at school or maybe you just feel like you are somewhere you don’t really belong. Maybe you’ve surrounded yourself with people that don’t suit you, or you’re trying to adjust to new surroundings. Because your body and mind are taking time to adapt to these changes, those feelings of being “lost” find their way into your dreams. It’s also possible that you have realized that the path you are on is leading you somewhere that you don’t want to go. Maybe you are being pressured by friends or family to do something that isn’t right for you. Maybe you joined a new after-school club that’s not really your thing. You could be pushing yourself to be someone you’re not so that you can please the authority figures in your life or fit in better at school, and because of this, you’ve started to lose some of your sense of self.

Dreams: Having Surgery or an Operation

Dreams about surgery can be scary, but often, they’re related to personal healing. If the dream doesn’t have to do with some outside factors (like you or a friend undergoing surgery in real life), then it is probably a teaching moment. Think about what sort of surgery you are having in your dream, and what things might be bothering you in your waking life that need to be cut out. Surgeries are meant to help you, not hurt you, and in the same way, this dream may be encouraging you to get rid of something unhealthy from your life. Even if the separation is uncomfortable, scary, or painful, it will be better for your physical and emotional well-being in the long run. If you have been struggling with feelings of anxiety in your life, or just general distress, consider what the source might be and what parts of that you can change or carve out of your life. Trust me—it will be a wonderful, cleansing process!
